Global Warming is a Farce?

Now I see if you want to debate the impacts of global warming. I can see if you want to argue solutions to the problem or urgency of their implementation but to say that the over whelming amount of data and scientists who are studying the problem have no idea what they are talking about is dangerous and irresponsible.

The next time you hear someone say this it is time to ask a few questions.

1.) How do you think a green house works?

2.) Do you think that changing the thickness or material the greenhouse is constructed of will change the environment inside?

3.) Do you think we can accurately measure gas or air and the types of pollutants in the air?

Little experiment you can do for some extra convincing.

I think the main problem tends to be the grasping of size and relatively fragile nature of the problem. Climate change is small gradual and occurring over time. For example there is variation like this winter being a heat wave in Minnesota. Might not be due to global warming just a random occurrence. It is the overall trend that is concerning.

Yes weather patterns have changed in the past due to asteroids, volcanoes, polar shifts etc. They also had dramatic impacts on the earth. We can study these events just like we can study the impact we are having.
